DJ Pauly D wanted to spend the holidays with his daughter and shower her with gifts. This sadly wasn’t able to happen after the ‘Jersey Shore’ star’s baby’s mom Amanda Markert stood him up on a holiday meeting, HollywoodLife.com learned.
Pauly D was not able to spend the holiday season with his daughter, Amabella, 8 months — even though he bought tons of gifts for her and was planning on just spoiling her! Pauly is ready and excited to take on the full responsibilities of fatherhood — so you can imagine he was just crushed that the girl’s mother Amanda Markert, did not follow through with a visit for Christmas Day, and still hasn’t seen her into the New Year!
Pauly D Daughter: Christmas Visit Blocked In Custody Struggle With Baby’s Mom
The DJ, 33, was fully prepared to spend Christmas Day with his daughter and bought her presents — but even into the New Year, he is see the look on her face when he gives her the gifts. Amanda Markert, 25, the baby’s mother, has full custody of the girl, and didn’t ease up on Pauly’s visitation — even over Christmas. In fact, “he drove all the way there [to meet Amanda] only to have the mother stand him up, so now he’s taking it to the court,” a source close to Pauly told HollywoodLife.com.
This is especially sad because Pauly bought his daughter “a ton of gifts — a ton — and hasn’t had the chance to give them to her yet,” a source told WetPaint. “He also has a nursery set up for her at his house in Rhode Island that hasn’t been used. It’s really a shame.”
Pauly D’s Custody Battle Continues
Pauly D is heading back to court to be a bigger part of his daughter’s life — even though he’s a busy DJ! As of now Amanda, 25, has custody of the child, and isn’t too eager to give Pauly visitation, but the DJ wants to appeal in court so he can spend more time with her. Pauly has previously spoken about how excited he is to be a father, and he shouldn’t have to miss out on the baby’s early years! Pauly and “his family are committed to being a significant part of his daughter’s life and are excited to make that a reality,” his rep previously told HollywoodLife.com.
HollywoodLife.com reached out to Pauly’s rep for comment. We hope he gets to see Amabella soon!
